The powerful striker joined Bath in September 2014 from vo-Stik League South West side Paulton Rovers.
Following spells with Taunton Town, Bridgwater Town and Cinderford Town, the 27-year old moved to Winterfield Road in June 2012.
He enjoyed two successful seasons with the club, culminating in scoring both goals against Merthyr Town in the 2013/14 play-off final to send Paulton into the Southern Premier.
Although he struggled with a number injuries, he scored 14 goals - including in both legs of the Buildbase FA Trophy semi-final - in thirty-seven appearances.
He continued to dogged by minor injuries during the 2015/16 season but during the latter stages of the campaign began to show signs he was overcoming these issues and it was no surprise when Bath offered him a new deal for the 2016/17 season.
Has made over 100 appearances for the Romans, scoring 32 goals.
Manager Mark Collier told the club`s official Pitchero website: “Nick has been on the radar for some time now, so I am particularly happy that we have managed to secure a deal to bring him to Hardenhuish Park. He will certainly bring another dimension to us and has a proven track record at National League South level.”
McCootie will be in tomorrow’s matchday squad if the relevant paperwork is ratified by the FA and National League.
